Teaching method

The first year of the Bachelor programme in History of Art and Archaeology: Musicology includes common Faculty courses and subject courses.

The common training includes general courses (History, Literature, Arts and Civilisations, Methodology, Philosophy etc.) which are taught by teams of lecturers. They are accompanied by practical exercises and tutorial sessions which ensure that the different cross-curricular learning outcomes are integrated.

The subject courses are taught from the first term of the first cycle and form the main part of the teaching from the second term of the first year. During this year, tutorial sessions designed to help new students are led by students who are more experienced in the subject. A team of assistants also provides personal supervision for students as they progress.

Throughout the Bachelor in History of Art and Archaeology: Musicology, students will encounter varied teaching methods, adapted to the different learning aims: formal lectures, group work, individual work, seminars, visits, concerts.

From the second term of the first year, the courses relating to the chosen subject are taught using different teaching tools, all of which are designed to promote active learning.

Throughout the Bachelor programme, many academic visits, trips and concerts enable students to reinforce on the ground the knowledge they have acquired from the course. These trips are organised by the teaching team in relation to the subjects covered and in a progressive way.

Certain courses also make use of e-learning or online learning which involved the use of new multimedia technology and the internet to improve the quality of learning. These techniques allow, for example, distance collaboration, collective assessment of work and provide access to resources  and services, such as the Image Service, through which students can access databases of high quality images and/or original ones and numerous teaching aids relating to the subjects covered, and can also scan documents, etc.
